state. the margin was 58-42. the same day that barack obama won the state by ten points. i wonder your paper and the detroit news has been absolutely killing them over this. the free press has been killing snyder over this and endorsed him and turned completely. i wonder if that is indicative of a backlash this is not about the law itself. is there a backlash about the way it's happening and he said he wouldn't do this and a lame duck session. is there a backlash about the way this happened? >> absolutely. everyone is pretty angry about that. up until last tuesday, governor snyder said this was not on his agenda. it was too devicive and didn't want to deal with it. he came back and said it's on my agenda for a thoughtful discussion and by thursday the house and senate passed it without any public hearings and input or committee hearings. people are upset about how it was passed. republican had to get it done in the lame duck. after january they may not have been able to get it done. the republicans still will have a majority in january, but they lost five seats in the statehouse. they

that the obama side, the democrats want to change. there are two top rates. the 33 and the 35. under the obama plan, the 33 would go to 36, the 35 would go to 39.6. you know, if you're trying to negotiate a compromise, you can start to play with each one of those numbers and try to find something. the huge problem for the republicans on doing that is they're opposed to any kind of tax increase on principle. so it's very hard for them to go into the negotiations that way and say, well, we could live with 37. well, if you do that, you have violated everything you've said about what you stand for prior to that. min i mean, the easier way for boehner to handle this is to allow if not secretly encourage a vote to occur in the house on the senate bill. if boehner were to allow a couple of dozen of his people it to go sign the discharge petition so that that comes to a vote and it comes to a vote without boehner having his fingerprints on it, allowing some republicans to go over there and just vote for that, that's the cleanest way to get it done and violates the fewest principles of other

obama and john boehner do the gangnam style dance and then we'll be in a better place. >> you know, i want to say quickly, that reminds me of al simpson doing that, say what you will about him. he has a showman's flare. when he retired from the senate in 1996, he came up to the kennedy school in cambridge and he was working there with robert reich and got together and pitched a public television show. it's alan simpson's 6'7", robert reich, 4'10" and called it the long and the short of it. >> i know you're not making it up. >> comedy and politics, road trips. i watched it! senior in high school. i even attended a taping. >> last question. will you boldly go on the record right now and right here to support a common sense solution. >> everyone has a different deaf situation of common sense. that's too easy. >> neil irwin, thank you for joining us. >>> ahead, washington may be stuck in the neutral but the rest of the country is moving forward. new numbers of pot and gay marriage will have you talking. it's in the spin cycle as we roll on for wednesday, december 5th. questions? anyone ha

obama? all right. enough. we now bring in nbc news political director chief correspondent and host of the daily run down, chuck todd, armed with poll numbers burdened by the washington wizards and the miami hurricanes on the court so, chuck, what are the numbers telling us and more importantly, what are you hearing? >> on the cliff run, it is clear the president has public opinion on his side in an enormous way when it comes to the tax issue, but you also see there is a downside for him -- there already is plenty of down sfirtd republican but downside for him, if no deal happened, there is going to be sort of a collective public anger at washingtowashin. the way second term president cis work, you have basically one good calendar year to get stuff passed. there's other parts of the job that become more at the forefront in the second term, foreign policy, things like that, but in working with congress, you have got their individed attention for, you hope a year, that's why this is so crucial, figure out how to get something done. i can tell you this, it is -- i put it this way when it

% instead of 39.6% obama is asking for. that idea, horrifying the left. it does not poll very well. it actually doesn't do much from a budget tear standpoint but i think people say it's powerfully symbolic for the republicans to get that concession sen if this is something that the white house is willing to explore does this not suggest they're very concerned about the leverage of the republicans with the debt ceiling and pressure to give in in a real way here? >> i think there's desire on the part of the president to increase social security. while the public would like to both strengthen the two programs and never change them, that's not really possible. so, i think if the white house was able to make some reforms that they could agree to, that they think will actually help the long-term sustainability of the programs, and will also help get republicans on board to vote for something that not only increases taxes on the wealthy and also takes the debt ceiling debate off the table i think that they're going to look for ways to do that. if the president is seen in his legacy as somebod
